Info from passions....
This concert was very crowded, sweaty and memorable, like most visits to Glasgow. There was a lot of heckling so Morrissey lectured the crowd about bad behaviour. Performance-wise and sound-wise, it was one of the best concerts of the period, probably because it was recorded.
After "Hand In Glove", which was performed with a longer intro as the band hit the stage, Morrissey greeted the fans "Hello Glasgow!". An early version of "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" followed. Musically it was slightly different to the version that would be released, and in it Morrissey sang the slightly alternate "What she said to me at the end of the day...". In "This Charming Man", Morrissey changed one word in the line "This man said it's gruesome that someone so ugly should care", as he had been known to do now and then.
"Pretty Girls Make Graves" was introduced with "And now, a lesson for everybody". The following song, "Still Ill" was introduced as "...a nice song about the most enviable position imaginable 'Still Ill'!" There was a lot of heckling, so after "This Night Has Opened My Eyes", Morrissey shouted "Aaarrgh listen! What?". In the part in "Barbarism Begins At Home" where Morrissey just moaned and la-la-la'ed, echo effect was applied, making it sound eerie. "Back To The Old House" was introduced with the line "This is for all you marshmellows".
This concert was recorded for later radio broadcast. Of this recording, only "Girl Afraid" has made it out to the public when it was included on a freebie cassette called "Department Of Enjoyment". The cassette was given away with a 1985 issue of the music paper the NME.
The "Department Of Enjoyment" track mentioned above was then lifted from the tape and compiled on the rare 7" bootleg "Rest In Peace" (with the studio version of "This Charming Man" and the audio for "Sheila Take A Bow" and "Shoplifters Of The World Unite" live on television programme The Tube"), the more common bootleg cd "Asleep" (with 3 radio sessions, an alternate outtake of "How Soon Is Now?", 9 soundchecks from 26 September 1985 and 5 soundchecks from 1 October 1985) as well as "Wilde About The Smiths" (with many other live tracks, rarities and radio and tv sessions).
The whole concert can also be found on tapes and homemade cds traded among collectors, sometimes under the title "Oscillate Wildly". MP3s of the latter have also escaped to the trading networks.
